"I" For Immortality
The quest of a true artist is to reach beyond time.
But what you find there may change you forever.
Flo's grandmother Mara is eccentric, independent and obsessed with art – just like Flo. But Mara's time is nearly up. On her deathbed, Mara asks Flo to glaze her portrait with a mysterious serum gifted by her long-estranged friend Bernie, whose rainforest expedition eighteen years ago first sparked Flo's passion for painting.
Once glazed, Mara's portrait seems to come alive.
Flo confronts Bernie, but his ancient, plant-derived magic pulls her into a world of dread, desire, immortality (perhaps) – and a nightmare from which she may never escape.
"I" For Immortality is the second release from The Book of Exquisite Corpse, a collection of stories inspired by the surrealist word game of the same name. This short novel is about the desire to touch eternity.
